Casting

Prime Physiotherapy has experienced physiotherapists able to apply waterproof casts following fractures. Whether the fracture is acute and requires a back slab to allow swelling to stabilise before a full cast is applied or a fully weight bearing waterproof cast is required, our experienced staff can help you. Prime Physiotherapy utilises the newest casting technology using polypropylene casting material. This plastic cast is lighter, stronger and more comfortable than even fibreglass technology. New waterproof padding material ensures that the cast is snug and comfortable, ensuring full immobilisation of your fractured limb and therefore the best opportunity for healing.
